Despondent CBS Grouses About Fireworks, Trump Expressing Optimism
On Thursday night, CBS made it three-for-three in terms of the major broadcast networks displaying a night and day difference between their reactions to Joe Biden’s DNC speech and President Trump addressing the RNC. While CBS saw Biden’s remarks as “from the heart,” “great,” “incredible” and “soaring,” they derided Trump’s White House communiqué as “misleading,” possibly illegal,…
ABC Stews Over Pence Not Mentioning Blake, ‘Revisionist’ COVID History
On Thursday night after Vice President Mike Pence’s 2020 RNC speech, ABC journalists and liberal panelists were less-than-pleased he didn’t forcefully speak out against Sunday’s shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, condemn armed individuals defending businesses from rioters, and accept responsibility for the size and scope of the coronavirus pandemic.
Nets Hit Panic Button: NBC Host Upset Melania Condemned Looters?!
Late Tuesday night, the “big three” broadcast networks were trapped between a rock and a hard place. ABC, CBS, and NBC found themselves begrudgingly praising First Lady Melania Trump’s 2020 RNC speech and while they did plenty of that, they found an escape hatch by using her speech to broadly attack all speakers before her on Monday and Tuesday. Meanwhile, NBC Nightly News anchor…
Heart of Joe: CBS Lauds Biden’s ‘Incredible,’ ‘Soaring’ DNC Speech
While nowhere near Barack Obama in terms of infatuation, the liberal media did their best on Thursday night to sing the praises of Joe Biden following his 2020 DNC acceptance speech. And CBS did its part, trumpeting his “great,” “incredible,” “soaring” speech “from the heart” that was the “strongest” of his career.
Long Lost Love: Nets Cheer ‘Eloquent’ Obama’s ‘Amazing’ ‘Passion’
On Wednesday night, the broadcast networks reminded viewers of their undying love and adoration for former President Barack Obama, hailing his 2020 DNC remarks as a “pretty amazing” speech about “democracy” and “hope” that warned the former is “at stake” in 2020. And if that wasn’t enough, ABC claimed it would be “eloquent” and “edge” before it even happened while CBS called it afterward…
Column: Michelle Obama, America's Most Pampered Princess
Michelle Obama’s pre-recorded speech for the first night of the Democratic convention was praised effusively and automatically by the "news" media. Because the media see it as their job to praise everything Michelle Obama does with overwhelming enthusiasm. Please try this imaginative exercise: When has a “news” professional ever asked Michelle Obama a challenging question? Instead, she is the…
CBS Goes All-in for Jill’s ‘Empathy’ in ‘Contest About Character’
On Tuesday night, CBS was the only broadcast network to offer analysis beyond a brief summation of Dr. Jill Biden’s address to the all-virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention. That said, they didn’t waste it, hailing her remarks as full of “empathy” and “trying to draw a contrast to the Trump family” with Americans “so hungry” for hope and resiliency.
Obama Pal Gayle King Hails ‘Closer’ Michelle Throwing ‘Elegant Shade’
Eager to join in the leftist media worship of former First Lady Michelle Obama for her speech at the Democratic National Convention, on Tuesday, CBS This Morning co-host, Democratic Party donor, and Obama vacation pal Gayle King couldn’t help but gush about her friend being a “closer” who threw “elegant shade” at President Trump.
Nets GO GAGA for Michelle’s ‘Extraordinary,’ ‘Passionate’ ‘Sermon’
On Monday night, the “big three” broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC made sure viewers knew that were ready run through a brick wall after hearing Michelle Obama’s “extraordinary,” “emotional,” “passionate,” and “practical” “sermon” that will be shared long afterward. This was largely reminiscent of Obama’s 2016 DNC speech, which these same networks swooned over as an “artfully painted…
Face the Nation Fails to Probe Fed Official on Six-Week Lockdown Idea
The localized lockdowns weren’t bad enough. Filling in for Margaret Brennan on the show he used to helm, John Dickerson failed to push back on Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari’s proposal that the entire country go into a month-long national economic shutdown. GDP fell 9.5 percent in the second quarter, and at least “30 million” are unemployed, in-part…
Colbert & Dickerson Slam Trump’s ‘Barbarism,’ Hail Biden’s ‘Honesty’
On Monday night’s Late Show, host Stephen Colbert and 60 Minutes correspondent John Dickerson hoped that Joe Biden’s “honesty” would turn America away from the “demagoguery” and “barbarism” of President Trump. They both seemed to forget how Biden’s first presidential campaign self-destructed in the midst of a plagiarism scandal.
CBS on History: Will ‘Divisive’ Trump ‘Hold Back’ Progress?
CBS journalist John Dickerson has written a new history of the presidency. Naturally, This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil brought on Dickerson to use The Hardest Job in the World as a way to bash Donald Trump.
